Nearly thirty years strong, and the Nike Air Max family has no sight of slowing down any time soon, and only gets better generation after generation. The iconic Air bags have seen many shapes, sizes and iterations. Uppers have been outfitted in leather, canvas, suede, Hyperfuse, tape, Vac-tec and Engineered Mesh, updating each classic with modern technology to fulfil contemporary needs. Just in time for the coming summer months, Nike has unveiled the new Nike Air Max Breathe Collection.
Designed to keep your feet free from the oppressive summer heat, the collection draws insight from the on-the-go Brazilian lifestyle; exploring the sandy beaches one minute and treading pavement the next, the Air Max Breathe collection deconstructs 3 of Nike’s most iconic silhouettes, transforming them into ultra-breathable, lightweight shoes. The shoes have been stripped to their core essentials—layers of reinforcement removed and heavy materials jettisoned. Lightweight sandwich mesh adorns the majority of the upper to create pockets of space between the layers to allow for increased airflow, producing the most breathable Air Max models to date.
The pack innovations include taped seams, moisture-wicking linings, open-mesh uppers, elasticated laces and soft heel counters, all combined to deliver iconic silhouettes true to their roots and built for summer.
The Nike Air Max Breathe collection, consisting of the Air Max 1, Air Max Light and Air Max 90 silhouettes, will be landing online and in selected size? stores during the coming weeks, priced from £105.
